Acrylic training sketches

I bought a new book about painting with acrylics with explanations of some interesting techniques. Nothing completely new, but nicely explained. So I´ve spent this afternoon with experimenting. :)

Here are my results, nothing fancy, just training sketches in my sketchbook.
